Serena Williams says she doesn't regret her outburst during last year's US Open final and warns she would do it again if her emotions are as high as they were during her loss to Australia's Samantha Stosur.

This "lady" has let celebrity go to her head to the extent that she believes she can do no wrong and the world is against her. Aren't those psychological problems of a subject who cannot control herself or is insinuating that just proof for her that the the world is against her. Every competitor has emotions, but the brain usually has matured long ago to let their play do the talking by the time they are professionals. Spoiled children act like she does. Going all smiles and gushing excuses when on TV shows or in interviews doesn't work any more. Why am I not surprised she is not able to accept criticism?

This just shows that any resemblance between Serena and class is purely coincidental. She always tries to explain away her boorish behavior as being committed or emotional but it's just poor sportsmanship. The fine for the US Open outburst should have been far higher, as it was the second incident.

You do not need to be a psychologist to tell that Serena Williams never regretted for anything she had done. Probably that is the way she learned to do when she was being raised. It is sad that many athletes and their parents tend not to know that craziness may help their games and performance but being an athlete is not the only thing in their lives. Sooner or later they will be retired and have to merge into a different life circle where craziness and arrogance are no longer positive but despised behaviour. Serena perhaps should need help from friends who are different from her family or even professionals for behavioural therapy.
